Many (if not all) homeowners would agree when we say that it’s quite a struggle to maintain a spotless kitchen. Aside from working hard to achieve sparkling countertops, we also make it a point to have clutter-free shelves. After all, not only will these accomplishments inspire us return what we’ve used into its proper place, it will also encourage us to cook more mouthwatering meals. To help you ace this organizing challenge, we’ve collated six photos that can be your lovely reminders:

 

Do you have cute teacups and bowls gathering dust inside cabinets? Bring these out and clean each. Once you’ve picked out your favorites, showcase them on your shelf. For a seamless look, opt for ceramic pieces in white or light blue. Keep your shelf from being boring by adding accessories in pastel colors as well as potted plants.

 

Working on a modern minimalist look? A slim, wall-mounted shelf above the sink can be your focal point. Spruce it up with scented candles, two to three bottles of wine, and a pot of herbs for a sleek look.

 

Those who love collecting wooden accessories and printed dinnerware can showcase these on a shelf. Choose two plates and pair these with mugs. Use hints of brown and black as accent colors to keep your display from being boring.

Find similar must-haves at H&M Home, SM Makati.

 

Do you have wall-mounted shelves near the window and sink? Liven it up with herbs, succulents, or any indoor plant. To keep your shelf sophisticated, you can choose to display fine China and select dinnerware.

 

Aside from updating existing shelves, you can also install new ones! For a rustic-inspired look, check out Vintage Hardware Manila for pieces you can use. Line up clear jars of ingredients, condiments in glass bottles, and wooden accessories to complete the look. You can also include distressed accessories as décor for an old world touch.

 

Working on a modern aesthetic? Explore going pure stainless steel. Display pots, pans, and dinnerware in black-and-white for a futuristic appeal. You can also showcase the small appliances you have for a functional vignette. If you have space at the bottom of the shelves, install a magnetic strip (available in hardware stores) to hold knives and other utensils.

Find sturdy stainless steel shelves at Wilcon Depot.
